That's not true.  From /usr/ports/net/bind9/Makefile:

    .if defined(PORT_REPLACES_BASE_BIND9)
    PREFIX=         /usr
    BIND_DESTETC=   /etc/namedb
    CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --prefix=${PREFIX} \
                            --sysconfdir=${BIND_DESTETC} \

Building with that option will install BIND9 in /usr/bin and place its
config files in /etc/namedb.
